"After the completion of a thorough testing and evaluation process, it was clear that the DVM-250 and FleetVu Cloud Services platform best meet our requirements," stated Bill George, President of the Taxi Division of Transdev on Demand, which owns Palm Beach Yellow Cab. "With FleetVu Cloud we are able to effectively monitor our fleet utilization and the quality of our customer service from one central web-based platform. The combination of video and fleet telematics provides an extremely effective tool to improve safety, performance and the overall customer experience."
"With this purchase, Palm Beach Yellow Cab will be able to enhance driver and passenger safety by having video event recorders and telematics deployed across its entire fleet," stated John Rumage, Director of Commercial Sales at Digital Ally, Inc. "Our goal is to offer a cost-effective solution that includes in-vehicle event recorders, associated infrastructure and video archiving software that will fully satisfy our customers' fleet management requirements."
"We are pleased to experience continued growth and success in the commercial market, which is currently the fastest-growing business segment within our organization.

The DVM-250 is a video event data recorder (VEDR) that is integrated into a rear-view mirror and captures "events" defined by the customer, which generally include accidents, speeding, braking, swerving, and other user-defined triggers, while providing features such as immediate driver feedback. It also records in a continuous loop while simultaneously providing video documentation of events. The FleetVu Manager provides real-time alerts that allow management to be connected 24 hours a day, from any location, to continuously monitor and evaluate driver behavior and vehicle utilization. Other benefits include integrating instantaneous alerts into pre- and post-operation inspections, thereby maximizing driver safety and minimizing maintenance delays. As a result, the system may be instrumental in reducing accidents, fraud and litigation.
